The storm

sometimes comes with no warning

it doesn’t have to have one

because it is passing

and I will be OK

within the stillness of being.

  1. The problem I have with the storms is you get through one and find yourself smack dab in the middle of another one. ..or maybe that’s just me because I never seem to learn my lessons or head my own advice. lol

    1. Hi LauraBelle, I can relate – I’ve been working on how can I decrease the frequency and severity of storms. Not too sure what the answer is, but for me, once the storm is over – I just want to forget about and I don’t practice the lessons I learned mid-storm. This time, I wrote down some things that I noticed in the storm and put them in a bottle and put it out to sea so hopefully it will wash ashore and become a reminder. Peace, Harlon

  2. The storm and the stillness are such profound companions. I am amazed always at how we humans can know both of these within us, how we can carry them and come to know them. Storms without warning sometime wash things clean in ways that wouldn’t have been possible otherwise. Stillness is a raft that will remain until the waters have settled, and then beyond…

  3. Yes, dear Harlon. You will be okay. I sometimes wonder if they truly come without warning….or if we ignore it all long enough that we can no longer hold back…? Either way, the thing I know about storms is the air is never clearer than it is after one!! Breathe…drink it in ♡♡

    1. I agree Lorrie, as I am feeling like I am in a bit of one now, there were signs, it’s tough being in it, but I agree there air with be clear and the debris will be washed away. Much love, Harlon

  4. Love your thoughts, Harlon! One of the things I love about life’s storms is that they are very cleansing and everything looks so beautiful and fresh after. They also leave silver linings with gorgeous rays of sunshine shining down upon you. It will all be OK. Hugs to you, my friend! ♥

    1. Thank you Serena, I feel a bit in the eye of the storm now, it feels a lot less overwhelming with your great perspective – feeling cleansed and refreshed and seeing things in and even being in a new light. Hugs to you also my dear friend, Harlon

    1. Thank you JoAnna for your support. You do make a difference – and it’s a nice feeling. I took that picture when I was in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. I can’t remember the name of it there but it most ceretainly is in the same family as the mimosa trees. I do love them and it’s fun to get into nature and see all the variations. Yay for Biodiversityy! Hugs, Harlon
